Lent Week 1, Thursday

15 February, 2018

Obedience is a central theme in the Book of Deuteronomy. However, unlike the rigid understanding of obedience as fulfilling orders and commands in order to avoid penalties, here we have obedience expressed through love. Love and obedience set us free from what can be a tiny and selfish environment, and enable us to choose life so that all of us can live in the love of our Lord and lose the traits of prejudice, narrow mindedness and falsehood. Today, God calls us to obey the summons of total love – love without condition.

Lord, may I love you with my whole heart and above all things, and always be true to your Name.
